Someone used the word “Christmas” on Facebook today, and that stopped me in my tracks. I can’t believe it’s already time to shop. Here are some shopping ideas to make the holiday season easier.
Shop at the ACB Mini Mall. No crowds, no asking for help, no transportation hassles. Shop from the comfort of your own home, in your favorite chair, and let your fingers do the walking. Transport magically to the Mini Mall by visitingwww.acb.org and clicking on the Mini Mall link. Then visit all the shops – there’s so much to see. There are gifts for everyone, and free shipping, too.
